It's The LIttle Things That I Missed The Most

My life as I knew it has changed. I sort of figured it would but had no idea by how much. It definitely got worse before it got better and right now I'm going into the better direction and I couldn't be happier! :) Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I've been in constant pain and then more pain after labor. Two weeks later, it seems my life is finally headed the right direction one day at a time. After passing all the pregnancy pain and after labor hurdles, the lack of sleep is the only thing keeping me down right now but it's nothing compared to what I've gone through. Lack of sleep? Really, bring it! :) I can't say it enough though, this has definitely been the hardest pregnancy ever! I can say now, with all due respect, that I am done in this department so I am trying to enjoy every second of it as much as I can. :)
I'm a mom that prides herself in being there for my girls as much as they need me even if it means putting my self last or none at all. With two girls I thought I had it figured out, I've got two hands so I was able to divide myself with each one. Now with my third daughter, I was afraid I would not be able to do it anymore. How am I going to care for three now?! It's definitely more responsibility but it also makes life worth living. No matter how hard it may be, I would do it all over again in a heart beat! They are my greatest joy and blessings in this world and worth every ounce of pain I endured and more just to have them in my life.
When you go through hard times, you value life so much more and gives it a new found meaning that you didn't have before. To me it seems I've been handicapped for 10 months and to finally be able to do things I could only dream of, is amazing. Last night for example, I sat on the floor with my girls eating pizza and watching a movie! As simple as this may seem, to me this sitting on a floor was an impossibility! Bending to pick up something from the floor was out of the question. Walking normal and painless was only in my dreams! It was so frustrating to want to do things with my girls and I couldn't. Little things are what mean so much to me right now and that I never want to take them for granted again! I have learned that it's the little things that are the biggest blessings.
With Spring in the air, I am so hopeful and ready to start living again. I guess I will continue to do my best and that should be good enough. I just pray for strength and health to be able to keep up with my three growing baby girls. I'm so looking forward to life now that I can't wait to get started again. It feels like I've been away somewhere unavailable but feel so positive about my life from now on. Even if it may be harder, it will also be so much more fun and rewarding and that is where I want to focus on. I've done it once, I've done it twice so third should now be easy.
It should. :)
